I am forwarding the message below for Walter Lew, the scholar of Korean
literature, multimedia artist, and poet.
Serk Bae Suh
For those of you in the NY-area intrigued by the once-popular Korean
practice of live narration of film, I invite you to enjoy a show taking
place this weekend in Brooklyn and the Lower Eastside. In Korea, the
"movietellers" were known as py^onsa (cf. Roald Maliangkay's article at
while the Japanese performers were known as benshi. In organizing the
show, I was often guided--though sometimes very abstractly--by my own
research in the history of movietelling, especially my interviews in
Seoul of the supposed "majimak py^onsa" Shin Ch'ul. Hope to see some of
you there! Present student ID for half-price admission.
